Day 21 Review

Day 21 (The 100 #2)
by Kass Morgan

What they say: No one has set foot on Earth in centuries -- until now.

It's been 21 days since the hundred landed on Earth. They're the only humans to set foot on the planet in centuries...or so they thought. Facing an unknown enemy, Wells attempts to keep the group together. Clarke strikes out for Mount Weather, in search of other Colonists, while Bellamy is determined to rescue his sister, no matter the cost. And back on the ship, Glass faces an unthinkable choice between the love of her life and life itself.
In this pulse-pounding sequel to Kass Morgan's The 100, secrets are revealed, beliefs are challenged, and relationships are tested. And the hundred will struggle to survive the only way they can -- together.

I received a copy from the publisher (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I enjoyed Day 21 much more than The 100. I think is is because the pace has picked up and the writing flows more. There is a greater focus on the teens currently on Earth and the characters are more believable.

The book is still very different to the TV show although it does seem like it is building towards the same thing. Bellamy is softer and seems younger in Day 21 than the show.

I do miss Finn and he seems to be a combination of Luke, Wells and Bellamy. I wasn't expecting Sasha and kept waiting for Lincoln. I guess this is the problem of reading an incomplete book series which is currently being adapted into a TV show. 

Glass definitely grew on me in this instalment and I had my fingers crossed for her and Luke. I liked seeing Clarke and Bellamy get on and meeting some more of the non-spaceship born characters (the grounders in the show).

I'm not sure how many books Kass Morgan has planned in the series because the book ends on a cliffy. I'd like to know where she intends to take her characters.

3.5 - 4 Stars in my Sky!
